5 on Friday -- Set 299

Spinning Friday tunes since 2010...

As we head for my 300th set, coming up next week, I'm in a mood to celebrate for two reasons. One is the fact that I'm almost at my milestone set.

The other is my return to work this week after one year and three weeks on medical leave.

I have multiple chemical sensitivities and chronic pain/fibromyalgia among a few other things, which had reached critical-mass levels by late 2013. I somehow managed to crawl my way through 2014, but renovations at my day job ultimately led to my pre-emptive medical leave.

Throughout 2014 and 2015, I received treatment at what used to be called the Environmental Clinic, but what has been renamed the Integrated Chronic Care Service. I'm still receiving sauna detox treatment there, which has been a significant factor in my recovery.

I'm now the happiest employee ever. Nothing makes you happy to walk into your office like being away for a year. So let's celebrate!   

1 - Get Back - The Beatles featuring Billy Preston

2 - Up - Shania Twain

3 - Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) - Kelly Clarkson

4 - Shake it Off - Taylor Swift

5 - I Can See Clearly Now - Johnny Nash

If you'd like to join in, simply choose five pieces of music and post them for other bloggers to enjoy. Then check out the set posted by the other 5 on Friday blogger -- you can sign in over at Golch Central's Rambling Stuff.
